(towal ADVANCt THURSDAY, AUG. 4,1966 ABOUT EVERY so often there's a news story out of hot and dusty Florida boosting the benefits of that great state. One of these regular stories that bob up came last week when it was reported a gal of 22 summers was arrested for driving in the nude. Said she'd been swimming and wanted to dry off without a wet bathing suit. The justice of the peace clobbered her for a $25 fine for indecent exposure, so the story said. Now the Old Goat is plenty narrow etittrmin, t«tf i *f TruittM MMtofMf AfttBclitian of InvHtmtnt Club* Q, Don't you think the government Intentionally brought on the break in th« stock market that started in May? A. The federal government tightened the money supply and raised interest rates. While this action was designed to slow up inflationary forces, it was probably not aimed primarily at the stock market. But certainly such action could be expected to slow up business, and this propect has been reflected in the stock market. The inflation in our economy for many years has pretty much been created by government action. There is no question but what we were beginning to get excessive speculation in the market and the entire business picture has been suffering from inflation. Over the long pull, the prospect seems to be for more inflation, increased business, and a minded but a gal driving along continued rise in the dollar val- at 60 per in the nude isn't giv ing much exposure, indecent or otherwise. The Old Goat doubts very much whether radar shows how many clothes a person has on. So the whole story seems a bit on the publicity side for Miami Beach. Of course there may be dames there who would happily do such a thing, but the gendarmes can't be so narrow minded as to sneak a look in the car 'to see if she has things and stuff covered up. No sir-it sure sounds phony. * * * THE OLD GOAT and horses have a pact-they don't like each other. There are people who go nuts over a horse and bless them for it, but deliver the Old Goat from the likes of a horse. Once upon a time a visit to a farm netted a bite on the shoulder for the Old Goat from a horse who took a dim view of people in general and a small boy in particular. All this leads up to is the fact some horses are being ridden in the fair city. Now a horse couldn't care less about used oats, and at several places there are reminders that a horse passed this way. Time was when this was normal for everyone had to have a horse, but not now. One irate citizen whose curb was decorated wanted to make the rider come back to clean it up but he didn't know who to blame. Another thing, while the Old Goat is making his horsey friends good and mad-why do they have the horses at the head of a parade, making the band members and all the marchers step high, handsome and sidways? Put the horse at the other end of the parade. « * * MAYBE THIS WILL catch on but the Old Goat doubts it. The commercial showing a husband and boys watching a ball game and putting pop bottles, popcorn, potato chips, etc., on the table in front of them. Then the hapy housewife comes in humming a happy tune and cleans it up with one swipe of ue of most common stocks. * * * Q. Would you give me the names of some of the better mutual funds?' A. I .make no specific recommendations on stocks or mutual funds, but have some thoughts for you to consider in selecting what might be the best mutual fund for you. Mutual funds come in several broad categories: Those that emphasize growth, those that emphasize income, 'balanced* funds containing stocks aimed at both growth and income and those which hold common stock shares with no specified goal, i After you have uecided which particular c&cegory fits your own special needs, go to your local library and read Arthur Wiesenberger's book, Investment Companies. It lists the various classifications of funds and you will be able also to see what these funds have done over the years. * * * Q. I am almost at retirement age and would like to invest up to $2,000 in a good firm where I could draw dividends to increase my income. Can you advise me? A. It is unfortunate that people reach retirement age without having established an investment program, no matter how small. 1 would like to use your situation to point up to younger people that they should set up some sort of program of learning investment principles and gaining investment experience by the time they are 40. A person who starts an investment club by age 40, putting in $10 to $20 a month, is likely to have a nice little nest egg by the time he is retirement age, and will have gained experience and knowledge in investing that should help him make wise decisions on putting money to work for him. In your case, I suggest that you ask your bank manager to put you in touch with one of his trust officers or an experienced broker to advise you. Either of them should have sound ideas on how to get the most out of your money.' ; RobisoRsin annual reunion at Gall park Irvington — Attending a Robi> son reunion at the Call state park Sunday were Mrs. Dorothy Schulz and the Keith Sapps, of Des Moines, the Frank Decenas and Vernon Robison, Sioux City, the Keith Currans, Emrnetsburg, August Robisons, Swea City, Mark, Mike and Vioki Mortensen, Hutchison, Minn., Delores Mawdsley, Newton, the Harold Currans, Britt, Don Hanigs, of Wesley, Roscoe Madws R.

Now housebroke most husbands to such antics. They put a used newspaper over the table, pick up the spilled chips, ets. & kick the rest under the chair. And the humming that comes is not a happy tune. Maybe this commercial is to be a lesson to the wives? Hum a happy tune instead of beating the old man over the head with a skillet. Now that's progress! TO THE HILLS, men—the dam has busted! Last weekend wa$ the wedding of a half-sister of Mrs, Kennedy which seemed to be a warm- up for the sob sisters on the wedding to come this weekend. Mere man is about to be washed down the drain in the flood of goop about how each of the umpteen people in the parade looked. And on TV there'll be quite a bunch of stuff to be ignored by the men. Well maybe the women will be starry-eyed for a few days/ but the best a man can do is be noble about it all, and have an important golf game during the proceedings. » * * ONE THING about re-runs of the Ed Sullivan and similar shows you are warned by past experience when a stinker is coining up and can get out of the room for a drink of water or a tasty snack instead of being bored again.
